YES YOU CAN... AND YOU SHOULD!
Myth #1: "You can’t work your core while pregnant - it will squish the baby!"
FACT: It is extremely important to continue strengthening your core throughout pregnancy.
MYTH #2: "Pregnancy will make you prone to fitness injuries."
FACT: While pregnant, your body goes through many changes that can cause back pain, along with other ailments. A balanced fitness routine will keep you strong, mobile and feeling energized!
Myth #3: "Your heart rate should never go above 140 bpm."
FACT: Mommies who are more active and athletic should use “Perceived Level of Exertion” as their guide.
Myth #4: "It’s too dangerous to run or lift weights."
FACT: If you were lifting weights or a runner prior to pregnancy, then you can continue throughout pregnancy. Your intensity will change throughout each trimester.*
